Dr Xingya Feng is a Postdoctoral Research Assistant in the Department of Engineering Science, University of Oxford. Dr Feng is working on the UK-China project ‘Extreme Wave Loads on Offshore Wind Turbines’ with Prof. Thomas Adcock and Prof. Richard Willden. Dr Feng is a hydrodynamist.
Dr Feng obtained his B. Eng degree in Hydraulic Engineering (Honoured program) from the Hohai Unviersity, China in 2011. Dr Feng took his PhD study in the National University of Singapore (NUS) between 2011-2015 with the research topic 'Hydrodynamic analysis of wave interaction with marine multi-body systems'. Upon graduation he continued his research as a research fellow in NUS in 2016. He then joined the industry and worked for the classification society Bureau Veritas (Singapore) as a R&D Engineer in 2017. After a year in industry, Dr Feng joined the Environmental Fluid Mechanics group at the University of Oxford in 2018.
Dr Feng's research focuses on hydrodynamic analysis of wave-structure interactions. His work includes study of nonlinear water waves and their interactions with offshore structures, development of potential-flow based numerical models for free surface flows, and harmonic analysis of higher-order nonlinear wave loads. He has experiences with both potential flow models and CFD. His research interest includes environmental fluid mechanics, offshore and coastal engineering, ship hydrodynamics, wave statistics and offshore renewable energy.
